The Insight You Need to Decide on the Future of Your Relationship

Divorce is a serious decision that affects the future of your relationship, custody of your children, and ownership of your assets. As it affects so much, it’s crucial to give the matter thorough forethought before pursuing it. In order to properly do so, couples must first have a complete understanding of the process. Consider these common questions as you contemplate the future of your marriage.

How Long Does Divorce Take?

Divorces vary in length depending on the complexity of the couple’s case and whether they are pursuing a contested or uncontested divorce. Generally, you can expect the process to take between three months and two years in Florida.

Do I Need to Go to Court?

If you and your spouse are on good enough terms to pursue an uncontested divorce, you do not have to go to court to formally dissolve your marriage. Attorney Beatriz Zyne will help you submit the forms electronically, therefore circumventing any in-person appearance requirement.

Can I Get a Divorce if I Cannot Reach My Spouse?

You are allowed to pursue a divorce without your spouse present so long as you have put forth a genuine effort to find them. Such measures could include reaching out to those close to your partner, writing to newspapers, and contacting the Department of Motor Vehicles.

While you can dissolve your marriage without your spouse present, alimony cannot be awarded without serving them with the papers.

Can a Wife Restore Her Maiden Name?

A wife is allowed to revert to her maiden name during the divorce process so long as it is not in attempt to commit any sort of fraud or illegal activity.
